Try Mindfulness meditation in Urban Mill at PDP Gala 4.9.2020

Announcement for PDP Gala 2020 visitors from Urban Mill ecosystem actor network: Experience how mindfulness practices make difference in the state of your mind and learn how mindfulness can support your team.

MINDFULNESS SUPPORTING YOUR TEAM | FRIDAY 4.9.2020 at 11:00-13:00
4 different practices á 30 min: 11:00, 11:30, 12.00, 12:30

Urban Mill, Betonimiehenkuja 3E, Otaniemi, Espoo, Finland

An innovative mind and good communication work best when there is just a moderate amount of stress, when one feels him/herself safe. This is something that you can improve with mindfulness-meditations. You may practice these meditations privately or as a team.

Well experienced, professional mindfulness teacher Erja Lahdenperä, Helsinki Mindfulness will guide these meditations.

Fri 4.9.2020 – 4 different exercises

At 11.00 Body and breathing.
Calming down the nerve system, helping brains to become more open and observative. You might notice that you are finding solutions more easily.

At 11.30 Meditation of the sounds.
Opens the mind to observe the ”bigger picture”, perhaps also a different point of view.

At 12.00 Body and breathing with the difficult sensations in our body
One learns how to be with the problematic moments. Staying there calmly gives you an opportunity to notice the way out instead of pretending that the difficulty doesn’t exist.

At 12.30 Body scanning
Helps to calm down and to become close to yourself. Helps to improve emotional intelligence and gives a way to recognize the hints of intuition.

Be at the place in time because we will close the door when we start.

You may come only for one meditation or you may like to try them all.

Give yourself, your body, brains and heart this experience. You will notice the difference.

See you at PDP Gala!

Erja

Aalto Explorer Opens the Oceans for Everyone to Explore

Aalto University has published a fascinating story about Aalto Explorer which continues its underwater adventure through crowdfunding. The aim is to send a remote controlled underwater vehicle to the Baltic Sea in the summer.

“The vision of Aalto Explorer’s international team of over ten members is to develop a remote controlled and unmanned underwater vehicle, whose underwater journey can be monitored by people all around the world through a network application.“

The team operating in Urban Mill consists of the Aalto Industries company, students from the Aalto University Product Development Project (PdP) course, and other Aalto University students and alumni. The project has received a small amount of initial funding from a private investor, but the development team works mainly on a voluntary basis.

“The majority of the world’s seas have not been explored. Our goal is to allow people to see the beauty of the seas, learn new things and even find lost treasures. At the same time, we would like to draw attention to the state of the seas, says Aalto University master’s student Loi Tran, who is responsible for the project’s business concept.”

“Aalto Explorer originated in 2017 on the Aalto University Product Development Project (PdP) course as a student project, which was sponsored by the company Aalto Industries. A team of students from Aalto University and the Indian School of Design & Innovation built an underwater rover and its interface prototype.”

“The miracle of Otaniemi, inventor Oskari Heikkilä from Aalto Industries describes. I cannot think of another place where you could find a team of over ten experts to work on a voluntary basis aside their studies and jobs in order to create something entirely unprecedented. These people have a lot of courage.”

“The project’s continuation is planned to be financed by a crowdfunding campaign to be launched this summer. The objective is to raise one million euros. Aalto Explorer aims to embark on its journey in the Baltic Sea this year.”

Kahden Otaniemestä valmistuneen dippainssin häät ovat tietenkin Otaniemessä, ja niihin tarvitaan luonnollisestikin hallinosturia

Meidät vihittiin 06.10.18 Otaniemen kappelissa, ja siitä siirryimme tilausbussilla pitämään cocktailtilaisuutta Urban Millille noin 65:n vieraan voimin. Urban Mill oli meille molemmille ennestään tuttu Product development Project -kurssigaalan esittelytilana, luentojen pitopaikkana, ja yhden iltajuhlankin olen siellä ehtinyt viettää.

Yhteistyö Urban Millin Larsin kanssa sujui varsin joustavasti. Saimme tuoda tilaan kaiken tarvittavan, ja järjestellä sen edellisenä päivänä, juhlia seuraavana, ja hakea tavaramme tilasta rauhassa viikonlopun jälkeen, kun olimme saaneet ensin hetken hengähtää ja toipua häistä.

Urban Mill tarjosi erittäin hyvät puitteet cocktailtilaisuudellemme. Tilaisuuteen sisältyi onnittelumaljoja, kuulumisten vaihtoa, pientä purtavaa ja vähän erikoisempi versio häävalssista. Meille oli merkitystä sillä, että tunsimme tilan ennestään, ja että se ei ollut kaukana vihkikappelista. Lisäksi tehdasmainen rouhea ympäristö soveltui hyvin teekkarimentaliteettiimme.

Cocktailtilaisuutemme kruunasi esitys, jolla korvasimme perinteisen häävalssin. Allekirjoittanut teki ilma-akrobatiaa kankaalla, joka saatiin kiinnitettyä ja nostettua hallinosturilla ylös luotettavasti. Tuore aviomies hoiti esityksen musiikkipuolen itse säveltämänsä pianovetoisen kappaleen voimin. Urban Milliltä siirryimme onnellisina kohti iltajuhlaa ja yhteistä elämää.

Haluamme kiittää, että saimme tilan käyttöömme tärkeänä päivänämme ja apua myös järjestelyihin!
